Godswill Akpabio set to dump PDP for APC…….Reception to hold at Ikot Ekpene Stadium on Thursday 9

“Acting President, @ProfOsinbajo accompanied by Senator (Dr ) Ita Enang, and leaders of the APC in Akwa Ibom to formally receive Senator (Dr.) Godswill Akpabio into APC at Ikot Ekpene Stadium on Thursday 9 August, 2018. All lovers of Democracy are cordially invited”.

 

Senator Godswill Akpabio, a former governor of Akwa Ibom state, is set to dump the Peoples Democratic Party and dampen the celebration mood in the PDP headquarters, over the defection of some senators and three governors from the All Progressives Congress.

Now a reverse switch is about to happen, with one of the main pillars of the PDP in the South South crossing to APC.

APC Newspaper on its Twitter handle announced Saturday night: “We can confirm that, HE, Sen (Dr) Godswill Akpabio is a card carrying member of @OfficialAPCNg effective August 4, 2018. @OfficialPDPNig has lost him. Official Reception in days”.

 

And APC United Kingdom in another tweet set the date for the defection: “Acting President, @ProfOsinbajo accompanied by Senator (Dr ) Ita Enang, and leaders of the APC in Akwa Ibom to formally receive Senator (Dr.) Godswill Akpabio into APC at Ikot Ekpene Stadium on Thursday 9 August, 2018. All lovers of Democracy are cordially invited”.

 

Akpabio’s political movement appears irreversible as he also visited  former the  National Leader of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in his Lagos home, to seal things up.

Akpabio, two-term governor of oil rich Akwa Ibom state, is at present minority leader of the PDP in the senate.

Analysts said Akpabio’s crossing over to the APC may flip Akwa Ibom to APC in next February election and at least assure President Buhari of capturing 25 per cent of the vote.
